WHAT IS PAGL

PAGL is an acronym for peace, assurance, gratitude and love. The awareness of PAGL exists in a pure and perfect consciousness.

The PAGL Principle, or Principle of Existential Validation, is as follows:  if an idea, concept, principle or value is true, i.e., if it is in harmony with Reality, the fundamental order of existence, it will validate itself in two ways
– there will be a sense of peace, assurance, gratitude and love (PAGL) in consciousness
– it will bear “good fruit” and be the perfect solution to the situation or issue. It will liberate from confusion, heal problems, harmonize situations, uplift and inspire.

Any idea, concept, principle or value which validates itself according to these criteria is said to be existentially valid and is, therefore, reliable. Any idea, concept, principle or value which does not conform to these criteria is said to be existentially invalid, and is, therefore, not reliable. The presence of PAGL is the indication that we are heading in the right direction. The presence of difficulties indicates that we are heading in the wrong direction. Therefore we can say “Do not make a move without PAGL.”

The PAGL Principle is a benchmark that can tell us whether or not we are on the right track on any issue in life, or whether we are just deceiving ourselves. The principle also teaches us to rely on valid concepts and principles when making choices rather than people, authority figures, institutions, belief systems, etc.
